Synopsis

Shortlisted for the Parliamentary Book Awards 2017: the perfect book for International Women's Day



`Jess Phillips writes like she talks: brilliantly. Her humour and passion shine through every page. Loved it.' Robert Webb



If you're thinking, `Jess, who?' then I'm glad that there was something about `Everywoman' and `truth' that caught your eye.



Or you might already know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about the stuff I care about. Because I'm a woman with a cause, I have been called a feminazi witch, a murderer and threatened with rape. The internet attracts a classy crowd.



So, speaking the truth isn't always easy but I believe it's worth it. And I want you to believe it too. The truth can be empowering, the truth can lead to greater equality, and the world would be incredibly boring if we let all of those people who allegedly know everything, say everything.



By demanding to be heard, by dealing with our imposter syndrome, by being cheerleaders, doers not sayers, creating our own networks and by daring to believe that we can make a difference, we can.



We're women and we're kick-ass. And that's the truth.





'Joyfully candid and very funny.' Guardian



'Jess Phillips knows the truth . . . and here she shows how scary and sad as well as joyful and liberating the answers can be.' Damian Barr



'Everywoman has all the laughs [of Lena Dunham and Caitlin Moran] with a backbone of real glinting anger . . .there were so many funny and wise things on each page that whittling them down into a review seemed impossible.' Julie Birchill, Spectator



'As fresh as mountain air amid the Westminster tumbleweed.' Metro



'Arresting.' Observer

She has worked with the Home Office, the Ministry of Justice and the Department for Communities and Local Government on issues of Violence Against Women and Girls. She is one of the women who launched the #NotTheCost campaign to combat the violence faced by politically active women, and the Recl@im the Internet campaign, which challenges abuse online. Jess lives with her husband and two young sons in Birmingham, where she was born and raised.
